Default Do you have to give your luggage to the porters?

I have been on two cruises and have always given our luggage to the porters when we arrived at the port.

I was wondering if anyone knows if you are allowed to just take all of your luggage with you in the terminal and then carry it on the ship yourself??? This way we will have our luggage on time and wont need to worry about getting it late on the first day.

I don't think the x-ray machine is large enough to scan luggage when you board the ship and I think it would hold up getting people on.

Thanks Duane,

I forgot about the x-ray machines and your right, you can really only fit carry-ons thru that.

So long as it will fit through the scanners you may take it onboard with you. The scanners are the same size as those you encounter at the airport so basically it is carry-on size and a noraml suitcase will not fit. You MUST check those or anything that will not fit through the scanner.

I don't know if you have to give your luggage to the Porter. I just know that I do not want to drag my luggage around. The only luggage that I keep with me is a garmet bag with my evening wear, shoes and something to wear to dinner the first night. The other bags go with the Porter. Think about going up the elevators and stairs dragging luggage. I did it once and trust me it is not fun.
